A sports doctor at Michigan State University sexually assaulted a teen gymnast during treatments for back pain in 2000, according to a campus investigation that's separate from a criminal probe and a blizzard of lawsuits against him. The conclusion by Michigan State's Office of Institutional Equity could hurt the university as it defends itself against lawsuits by dozens of women and girls who visited Dr. Larry Nassar for sports injuries, especially gymnasts of various ages from around Michigan. The report stems from allegations made by Rachael Denhollander of Louisville, Kentucky, who has publicly identified herself as a victim.

Three Russian athletes have been disqualified from the 2012 Olympics after failing doping retests, the country's track federation said. Hammer throwers Maria Bespalova and Gulfiya Khanafeeva, and triple jumper Viktoria Valyukevich were all disqualified. The disqualifications of Bespalova and Khanafeeva mean all three Russian women who competed in the hammer throw in 2012 have tested positive for doping.

To earn a place on South Korea's team for next year's Olympics, you may need to brush up on your singing. A rendition of the national anthem in front of immigration officials is a daunting but necessary hurdle faced by the many foreign-born athletes seeking to represent the home team at the Pyeongchang Games. Alexander Gamelin, an ice dancer from Boston, has the anthem memorized and is reading up on Korean culture and history ahead of his immigration interview.

The Paris bid team issued an ultimatum to the IOC on Tuesday: It's the 2024 Olympics or nothing. With only Paris and Los Angeles left as 2024 bidders after rivals dropped out, IOC President Thomas Bach has raised the prospect of one city being awarded 2024 and the other taking 2028 to avoid there being a loser. ''We can't accept '28,'' Paris bid co-chairman Tony Estanguet said during a visit to London on Tuesday.
